Record sales for Dr Chee Soon Juan’s new book ‘Democratically Speaking’
Posted by temasektimes on September 14, 2012
Singapore’s much maligned opposition leader Dr Chee Soon Juan used to be shunned by fellow Singaporeans in public, but now they are mobbing him for his autographs and to lay their hands on his latest book ‘Democratically Speaking.’
Dr Chee has been selling his books at Raffles Place for the past three days and managed to sell all of them.
In an update on his Facebook, Dr Chee wrote:
“We made another record breaking sales today – all thanks to you! After paying off the production costs for the book, we still have $8,000 to date in the kitty to pay LKY and GCT. But we can’t ease up now, we have to press on.”
Dr Chee was bankrupted by a series of defamation suits filed by former Prime Ministers Lee Kuan Yew and Goh Chok Tong in 2006. The duo has since accepted his offer of $30,000 settlement which Dr Chee is raising through the sales of his book.
